The mission of Hope For The Hungry is to "Share the Bread of Life with a Starving World". God has called us to serve people who suffer from hunger that is both spiritual and physical. According to scriptural mandate, we offer food for the body and salvation for the spirit to those who do not know Jesus Christ and will suffer eternal death without Him.

There is a young boy here name Mogley.  Mogley has a birth defect called club foot that has distorted the growth of his right leg while the rest of his body continues to grow normally.   He has taken on a great afffection for our team and spent the day hanging around our project sites.   Inspite of his physical limitations, Mogley is a smiling, mischevious, joyful little boy.  His eyes are full of hope and promise, not because of our presence this week, but because of the power of the love of Christ shown to him.

Mogley represents Haiti.  So often this beautiful country is crippled by the deficienceies that surround it - corrupt government, economic disadvantage, educational gaps, and spiritual depravity.  But over and over, the teams that come here with Hope for the Hungry see something different.  Like Mogley, the deficiencies are obvious but they do not define the future. Instead these teams see a ministry that is pushing back against the darkness with the light and hope of Christ.  These teams meet men, women, and children whose lives are full of promise and joy because of the difference made by Christ.

This trip has been no exception.  Our team has worked hard and made a significant impact; however, our conversations at the end of the day most often entail the stories of the Haitian people we meet whose lives are being changed by the Gospel.

Pray for energy and strength for our last full day of work
